The developers behind the Fairmont Museum District apartments in Montrose could break ground on a new phase later this year at 4343 Woodhead St., a filing shows.

Work on a project called Fairmont Museum District III is slated to begin Sept. 1, according to a document on Texas' licensing and regulation website.

The scope of work describes it as a 302-unit development with nine stories of apartments above a three-story garage. The leasing office will be on the ground floor, while amenities are planned for the fourth and 12th floors. The filing lists Houston-based Steinberg Dickey Collaborative as the design firm.

County appraisal records show the tract of land belongs to the entity Woodhead Development LLC, which bought the land in May 2018. In 2019, the land was appraised at $7.89 million.

That entity is linked to Josef Marom, according to the Texas comptroller site. Requests for comment from Marom via the number listed on the state filing weren’t immediately returned.

In 2003, the Houston Business Journal reported Marom offered the Houston Independent School District $2.6 million for a 3-acre tract at 4310 Dunlavy, the same address for the Fairmont Museum District apartments currently on the ground. That tract sits next to the land earmarked for the third phase.

Meanwhile, the Montrose submarket is the busiest area for proposed apartment projects, with 11, according to data as of Dec. 18 compiled by Houston-based ApartmentData.com. The research site tallied up 93 proposed communities across Houston. A March report from the site counts 61 communities, or 18,203 units, currently under construction.

I rode right by this last weekend, looks like very old decrepit apartments. They had already thrown out most of the interior junk on the lawn.

They were demolished this morning when I was going to Starbucks across the street.

No offense to La Tapatia but I'd rather see new residential.  

That's not part of it, just the two small garden apartments and the abandoned street between them. I'm sure eventually that strip center will be bought by a developer and fixed up.

There is an empty lot next to the demoed apartments, no need to take out La Tapatia unless whoever owns them sold out.

Based on the subdivision plat I posted back in 2016 the strip center containing La Tapatia will be demolished as well.

Another development that could potentially take advantage of the opt-in Transit Oriented Development standards.

 

Edit: my star is a little off. It should be shifted to the left part of the block, but still would apply if they go onto Richmond frontage.

If they opt-in, they would  get a 50% reduction in the parking minimum requirement and they would have to follow some streetscape design guidelines. See the back half of this PDF if you want a refresher https://houstontx.gov/planning/docs_pdfs/User's Guide for WP and TOD report_2020-10-01.pdf

It looks like Woodhead frontage will work too. It will be very interesting to see if the developer opts in. My head says they won't, but my heart says they will.

Agreed. Honestly, I wish they would just follow the streetscape guidelines and just build a slight reduction in parking just so I can have a project to point at, but I'm not really holding my breath.

According to this sign this is phase 3, the apartments just east must have been phase 1 and I assume La Tapatia will be 2.

I think Phase 1 is the building on the right, and Phase 2 was the building on the left (closest to Richmond). Google Earth history shows the one on the left was built after the initial building and they have slightly different styles.

The fact that they are loading up on the gravel tells me they are going to be using Vibro Stone Columns method of piers. Company I once worked for was building above ground tanks and the tank farm paid another contractor to use this method for piers before we came in to build the tanks. Keller Group, the company contracted to build the foundation here knows how to do this method.

I asked this guy walking some questions about the building, he appeared to be the boss.

He confirmed it will be 12 stories, will get a tower crane that will be located where they are filling this hole with rebar and the parking garage will be a built-in-place using the tower crane and not a precast.

Edit: I saw the logo on his cap for the company building this but by the time I got home I couldn't remember the name.

Per usual with Houston projects nowadays. Not enough RE coverage.

The impact of swamplot's death is really being felt. This explains why I've started to follow Austin's RE market more; yall have more exciting things happening.
